About this book

Using Michel Foucault's idea of governmentality, this book reinterprets various cases of revolt and popular uprisings in Bangladesh. It attempts to synthesize the theories of Foucault's governmentality and Antonio Gramsci's notions of hegemony and counter-hegemony.

Reviews

“Governmentality and Counter-Hegemony in Bangladesh provides an engaging, theoretical read of Bangladesh. … the author makes a strong argument for the re-examination of existing theorisations of governmentality and provides a unique and intellectually rich theoretical rendition of the concept. … Students and academics interested in political theory would greatly benefit from his analysis.” (Alex Johnson, LSE Review of Books. blogs.lse.ac.uk, January, 2016)
